If \(\displaystyle{n}={110}\) and \(\displaystyle{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}\) (p-hat) \(\displaystyle={0.66}\), construct a \(\displaystyle{95}\%\) confidence interval. Give your answers to two decimals \(\displaystyle?{<}{p}{<}?\)

Step 1 The confidence interval for a sample proportion at \(\displaystyle{95}\%\) can be calculated using the formula, \(\displaystyle{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}-{z}\cdot\sqrt{{{\frac{{{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}{\left({1}-{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}\right)}}}{{{N}}}}}}{<}{p}{<}{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}+{z}\cdot\sqrt{{{\frac{{{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}{\left({1}-{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}\right)}}}{{{N}}}}}}\), where \(\displaystyle{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}\) is the sample proportion, N is the sample size and z* is the approprite value from the standard normal distributions for the desired confidence intervals. The z* value for \(\displaystyle{95}\%\) confidence interval is equal to 1.96 Step 2 The sample proportion is equal to 0.66 and the sample size is equal to 110 and the z* value is equal to 1.96 Substitute the values of \(\displaystyle{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}\), N and z* in the formula, \(\displaystyle{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}-{z}\cdot\sqrt{{{\frac{{{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}{\left({1}-{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}\right)}}}{{{N}}}}}}{<}{p}{<}{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}+{z}\cdot\sqrt{{{\frac{{{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}{\left({1}-{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}\right)}}}{{{N}}}}}}\) to calculate the confidence interval of the sample proportion at \(\displaystyle{95}\%\) interval \(\displaystyle{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}-{z}\cdot\sqrt{{{\frac{{{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}{\left({1}-{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}\right)}}}{{{N}}}}}}{<}{p}{<}{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}+{z}\cdot\sqrt{{{\frac{{{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}{\left({1}-{w}{i}{d}{e}\hat{{{p}}}\right)}}}{{{N}}}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{0.5716}{<}{p}{<}{0.7484}\) The confidence interval for the sample proportion at \(\displaystyle{95}\%\) is equal to (0.5716, 0.7484)

Here are summary stastistics for randomly selected weights of newborn girls: \(\displaystyle{n}={224},\overline{{{x}}}={28.3}\text{hg},{s}={7.1}\text{hg}\). Construct a confidence interval estimate of mean. Use a 98% confidence level. Are these results very different from the confidence interval \(\displaystyle{26.5}\text{hg}{<}\mu{<}{30.7}\text{hg}\) with only 14 sample values, \(\displaystyle\overline{{{x}}}={28.6}\) hg, and \(\displaystyle{s}={2.9}\) hg? What is the confidence interval for the population mean \(\displaystyle\mu\)?

\(\ {27,2 \ hg<}\mu{<29,4 \ hg}?\) (Round to one decimal place as needed).

Are the results between the two confidence intervals very different?

You are given the sample mean and the population standard deviation. Use this information to construct 90% and 95% confidence intervals for the population mean. Interpret the results and compare the widths of the confidence intervals. From a random sample of 48 business days from January 4, 2010, through February 24, 2017, U.S. gold prices had a mean of $1368.48. Assume the population standard deviation is $202.60.
